I have somewhat of an interesting problem that might not have a solution, but it never hurts to ask. I am trying to find my Windows 8 Activation key that came with the operating system when it was pre-installed on my Microsoft Surface Pro (first generation).
Last week I went ahead and upgraded to Windows 10 Technical Preview on the surface tablet, however now I am trying to revert and re-install windows 8. I assume that when I try to do this I will need to provide an activation key.
Does anyone know if this is possible? I downloaded a program (https://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/) and it shows my Windows 10 CD Key, but would that be the same as my old Windows 8 activation key?
Let me know if you guys have any ideas - thanks!
